Kishan Singh, CEO of MetPac-SA has become the first packaging expert in South Africa to be awarded the Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation. It was presented to him by the international Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP).
Singh is a global ambassador of the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) and national education officer of the Institute of Packaging SA (IPSA).
IoPP has been awarding CPP designations to packaging professionals since 1972. There are currently less than 2 500 individuals worldwide to have achieved this coveted status. It requires proof of years of experience, in-depth knowledge of packaging, as well as commitment to the global packaging industry. The CPP programme is now also endorsed by WPO and IPSA.
Singh is permitted to use the suffix ‘CPP’ after his name on business cards and letterheads. He can wear the IoPP/CPP lapel pin and display his CPP Certificate.
‘This designation has become the leading mark of excellence internationally and a must-have recognition of industry proficiency and achievement for packaging professionals. I am very pleased for attaining the CPP designation. It is a commitment to excellence in the global packaging profession and an important investment in my professional development,’ Singh comments.
